Laser treatment can be used for tons of different things when it comes to skincare. Our medical spa specializes in all of these different treatments. Most of what they do is aimed at improving the texture and color of the skin. Laser treatment for pores is available to help reduce their size and prominence. It can also increase the overall look of your skin surrounding the pores you have issues with,.
How does this laser treatment work? In this short guide, we are going to break it down for you and give you all of the details.
What is laser treatment for pores?
There are a few different types of laser skin treatment. When looking to shrink the size or pores with a laser, you are looking for non-ablative laser treatments. They are able to heat up the skin and make a change without destroying it.
Basically, a non-ablative treatment is much less invasive than “ablative” treatments. You won’t need to spend as long recovering. Often, you can get right back to your day after treatment with a little redness.
How much does laser skin treatment cost?
As with most things, what you pay to have laser treatments done varies by geography and practice.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in 2016, laser skin resurfacing averaged $2,330 in 2016.
Keeping skin health in mind helps
We perform laser treatments to help shrink the pores, but that doesn’t mean we think that is the end-all-be-all to skin health. An excellent skin health program can drastically improve the appearance of your skin – including the appearance of your pores.
Chemical peels are also effective
Chemical peels are great when the skin is conditioned correctly to receive the chemicals and peel correctly. Keeping your skin in mind with everything you do is how you are going to be able to condition your skin. A similar concept to what we just spoke about above.
Medium depth chemical peels are highly effective for treating pore size.
Laser skin treatments are an effective and minimally invasive way that you can treat your pore size permanently. Skins and creams that are available out there can work while you are using them, but generally, the skin will return to normal when you stop.
Skin health is an important part of what we recommend to all of our patients. No amount of treatment or products can treat an unhealthy lifestyle. Talk to a dermatologist and ask them what you can do to improve your habits for your skin to be healthier.
